Birmingham Poem (COVID-19)
If the pandemic begins to worsen
Keep it together but 6 feet apart;
Social distancing – length of a tall person,
Communication by voice, eyes and heart.
We need poetry now more than ever,
It’s limited social interaction;
Social distancing – let’s stay together
On digital platforms, an attraction.
Our hands are cracked, we’ve used up all the soap,
A virus savages us without pity;
Social distancing – poetry is hope
And we need that in Birmingham city.
